Pacific Island communities

The Pacific communities are a vital part of Wellington. The Council has a number of initiatives designed to support and develop Pacific communities.

Pacific forums

The Mayor regularly hosts a forum for the Pacific communities of Wellington. As well as the Mayor, the forum is attended by Councillors, the Chief Executive Officer, Senior Management and other Council staff.

Past forums have covered topics such as alcohol management, seniors, youth and leadership.
